Amstrad GX-4000

The GX4000 was Amstrad's short-lived attempt to enter the games console market. The console was released in Europe in 1990 and was an upgraded design based on the then still-popular CPC technology. The GX4000 shared hardware architecture with Amstrad's CPC Plus computer line, which was released concurrently. This allowed the system to be compatible with the majority of CPC Plus software.

The GX4000 was both Amstrad's first and only attempt at entering the console market. Although offering enhanced graphics capabilities, it failed to gain popularity in the market, and was quickly discontinued, selling 15,000 units in total.

James Harding of The Times said that the console was "promptly outgunned by the 16-bit Sega Mega Drive and Super Nintendo – it failed the cardinal test of entrepreneurship: stamina."

The famous 24-hour race is about to begin. Your breath is held as you await the sound that signals the start. As your knuckles turn white from the taut grip you exert on the steering wheel, the horn blows and your 3000cc Turbocharged Porsche roars powerfully as the tyres squeal into life. The stench of Burnin' Rubber fills your nostrils and you realise that the next 24 hours are going to be the most dangerous you have ever faced. You control a customised Porsche in the famous 24-hour road race....
